Bountifully Blessed . . .

Day 2:

I am thankful for the opportunity to live in The United States of America.

Why? Because of the wonderful Constitution and the freedoms that it gives to me as a citizen of this great nation. I had the opportunity to vote and I can't help from having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for the men and women that gave and risked their lives for the future people of this land.

We have been studying about the Revolutionary War and reading a lot of stories about the people that were apart of it. They knew that there was supposed to be something more and better than what England was offering and so they gave everything to win their freedom. It is our duty as their descendants and as citizens of this great nation to show our gratitude and thanks to them by participating in the democratic process.

So, thanks to all those that have served this country and that do still serve. Thanks for my freedom and thanks to the Lord, for his protection and help to those that were the underdog.
